‘Pierre Mendell has consistently produced staggeringly simple solutions for a wide variety of print material,’ says Mike Dempsey. ‘But it is his poster work that has captured my heart. His beautiful posters for the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich’s prestigious opera house, are outstanding. It is refreshing to know that, with a pair of scissors and just two colours, all of the over-hyped and self-indulgent work that is so evident at the moment, is simply blown away by Mendell’s disarming simplicity. Long may he continue.’
